    Shiner Holiday Cheer (the only Christmas beer I have)
    La Fin Du Monde
    Samuel Smith Nut Brown Ale
    Sam Adams Oktoberfest & Harvest Saison (leftovers from a couple of months ago)
    My ever present cans of PBR.

    Eve: Boulevard Tank 7 with dinner and FBS after
    Day: Not sure, but I'll be back in my apartment mid-afternoon and will have a fridge full of deliciousness I've been saving for a nice, relaxing day all to myself. Options include BA Narwhal, Brooklyn Black Ops, BCBS, BCBCS, Clown Shoes Ride the Lion, Midnight Sun Berserker IS and my last bottle of Xocoveza. Looking forward to it.

    Found a 2013 Adoration in the back of the fridge, so it's only fitting I start with that. (BTW, did Ommegamg do a 2014 Adoration? If so, I missed it).

    After that I'll be eying a Lee's Harvest (calvados aged).

    That will probably be it.
